Robert Louis Stevenson was a great traveler, who spent his last years in the Pacific, far from his native Scotland. His novel Treasure Island is a seafaring adventure story filled with treasure, treachery, pirates, ships and islands. It was originally published as a serial in the children's magazine Young Folks. Stevenson's novel greatly influenced popular pirate imagery: the treasure map marked with "X", the tropical island, the schooner and finally the one-legged pirate complete with parrot.

This classic tale by Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-94) was first published as a serial between 1881 and 1882 in the children's magazine Young Folks, where it received little attention, and then in the form of this book in 1883, which secured its everlasting fame. Telling the story of the young Jim Hawkins' search for the buried treasure of Captain Flint, it had a profound impact on how pirates were perceived in the popular imagination, immortalising treasure maps marked with an 'X', exotic locations, and one-legged seamen with parrots on their shoulders. Vividly drawn, the character of Long John Silver remains one of the most compelling antagonists in all of children's literature. The work of a masterful storyteller at the height of his powers, this coming-of-age adventure has been adapted for film and television countless times, and continues to delight readers of all ages.

Masterfully crafted, Treasure Island is a stunning yarn of piracy on the fiery tropic seas--an unforgettable tale of treachery that embroils a host of legendary swashbucklers from honest young Jim Hawkins to sinister, two-timing Israel Hands to evil incarnate, blind Pew. But above all, Treasure Island is a complex study of good and evil, as embodied by that hero-villain, Long John Silver; the merry unscrupulous buccaneer-rogue whose greedy lust for gold cannot help but win the heart of every one who ever longed for romance, treasure, and adventure. Since its publication in 1883, Treasure Island has provided an enduring literary model for such eminent writers as Anthony Hope, Graham Greene, and Jorge Luis Borges. As David Daiches wrote: "Robert Louis Stevenson transformed the Victorian boys' adventure into a classic of its kind."

John Sutherland discusses the novel's place in Stevenson's biography and oeuvre in his learned and lively critical introduction to this new edition. Exploring the novel's genesis in Stevenson's "plundering" of other writers, his writer's block, and the surprisingly disturbing and complex nature of what was meant to be a children's story, Sutherland argues for the enduring vitality and appeal of Stevenson's first novel. Appendices include Stevenson's writing about the novel, contemporary reviews, and sources on which Stevenson drew (or from which he borrowed) when writing Treasure Island.

"Originally designed as a story for boys, Stevenson's novel is narrated by the teenage Jim Hawkins, who outwits a gang of murderous pirates led by that unforgettable avatar of amorality, Long John Silver. But Treasure Island has also had great appeal for adult readers and was admired by Mark Twain, Rudyard Kipling, and (reluctantly) Henry James. The story has the dreamlike quality of a fairy tale and has worked its way into the collective imagination of more than five generations of readers, gaining the power of myth." "Although thoroughly British in setting and characters, Treasure Island, as John Seelye shows, has an American dimension, drawing on the author's experiences living in California, and is in no small debt to Washington Irving's ghost stories and James Fenimore Cooper's tales of adventure. This new Penguin Classics edition also includes Stevenson's own essay about the composition of Treasure Island, written just before his death."--BOOK JACKET.

In November 1883, it was published by Cassell & Company, London, as a novel. This beloved coming-of-age work became Stevenson's first financial success. Mary Zimmerman's glorious rendition is a straightforward retelling of the pirates' swashbuckling mid-18th century adventures amidst mutiny, rum, and buried treasure on an exotic island. Young (perhaps in his early teens), brave Jim Hawkins has recently lost his father. He is an average, middle-class child of the late Victorian era, who signs on as the cabin boy aboard the Hispaniola in order to assist his widowed mother with the family's economic situation. Jim's antagonist, the peg-legged and morally ambiguous buccaneer Long John Silver, is both a malicious mutineer and (upon occasion) a charismatic father figure whom Jim learns to love. Treasure Island explodes like a cannon ball onto the stage regaling thrill-seekers of all ages with a story both epic and intimate, hilarious and harrowing. Tony Award-winner Mary Zimmerman (Metamorphoses, Arabian Nights) has penned a glorious adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's most beloved novel"--Provided by publisher.

The illustrations for this series were created by Scott McKowen, who, with his wife Christina Poddubiuk, operates Punch & Judy Inc., a company specializing in design and illustration for theater and performing arts. Their projects often involve research into the visual aspects of historical settings and characters. Christina is a theater set and costume designer and contributed advice on the period clothing for the illustrations. Scott created these drawings in scratchboard ­ an engraving medium which evokes the look of popular art from the period of these stories. Scratchboard is an illustration board with a specifically prepared surface of hard white chalk. A thin layer of black ink is rolled over the surface, and lines are drawn by hand with a sharp knife by scraping through the ink layer to expose the white surface underneath. The finished drawings are then scanned and the color is added digitally. Sneaky pirates, sailing ships, buried treasure, exotic lands, and murderous mutiny: what could be better to win over even the most reluctant boy reader? Robert Louis Stevenson serves up thrills, chills, and plenty of action in this timeless, and much-admired adventure novel.

Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) was born in Edinburgh. In the brief span of forty-four years, dogged by poor health, he made an enormous contribution to English literature with his novels, poetry, and essays. The son of upper-middle-class parents, he was the victim of lung trouble from birth, and spent a sheltered childhood surrounded by constant care. The balance of his life was taken up with his unremitting devotion to work, and a search for a cure to his illness that took him all over the world. His travel essays were publihsed widely, and his short fiction was gathered in many volumes. His first full-length work of fiction, Treasure Island, was published in 1883 and brought him great fame, which only increased with the publication of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1886). He followed with the Scottish romances Kidnapped (1886) and The Master of Ballantrae (1889). In 1888 he set out with his family for the South Seas, traveling to the leper colony at Molokai, and finally settling in Samoa, where he died.

It was in 1880 and 1881 that Robert Louis Stevenson wrote "Treasure Island", which was begun at Braemar, Scotland, where his father aided him with suggestions from his own seafaring experiences. It was finished in the course of his second visit to Davos in the winter of 1881-1882. "Treasure Island", which appeared when the author was thirty-one, was his first long romance, and it brought to him his first taste of popular success, when the story was published in book form. It was in October 1881, that this story began to appear as a serial in an English magazine called "Young Folks". The title then was "The Sea Cook, or Treasure Island", but when published in book form in May 1883, the name was simply "Treasure Island", a name which has taken its place among the titles of far older classics. This edition contains the superb illustrations of Louis Rhead, which were first published in 1915.

Completed during a stay at Davos, Switzerland, where Stevenson had gone for his health, it was published in 1883 in the form we know today. Set in the eighteenth century, Treasure Island spins a heady tale of piracy, a mysterious treasure map, and a host of sinister characters charged with diabolical intentions. Seen through the eyes of Jim Hawkins, the cabin boy of the Hispaniola, the action-packed adventure tells of a perilous sea journey across the Spanish Main, a mutiny led by the infamous Long John Silver, and a lethal scramble for buried treasure on an exotic isle.

A treasure map is found in old sailor's sea chest who once served under the pirate Captain Flint. Following the former pirate's death, young Jim Hawkins, Dr. Livesey, Squire Trelawney, and Captain Smollett set sail aboard the Hispaniola to find Treasure Island off the coast of South America. One of the world's most enduring adventure stories of pirates sailing to exotic islands, singing Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum Treasure Island marks Stevenson's mastery of tone, pace, and vocabulary. The idea for the story initially began with a watercolour map designed as part of an intricate adventure game for his stepson. As the novel gradually evolved, Stevenson regularly shared portions of the work-in-progress with friends and relatives, taking their comments into account. The novel was first published in serial form in Young Folks' Magazine under the title 'The Sea Cook' Treasure Island has received praise for its skilful plotting and pacing of action, its articulation of colourful characters, and its evocative setting. Much criticism of the novel has been concerned with the work's affinities with and departures from the familiar conventions of the prose romance, and specifically, adventure fiction.

But Jim soon becomes only too aware that he is not the only one who knows of the map's existence, and his bravery and cunning are tested to the full when, with his friends Squire Trelawney and Dr Livesey, he sets sail in the Hispaniolato track down the treasure. With its swift-moving plot and memorably drawn characters - Blind Pew and Black Dog, the castaway Ben Gunn and the charming but dangerous Long John Silver - Stevenson's tale of pirates, treachery and heroism was an immediate success when it was first published in 1883 and has retained its place as one of the greatest of all adventure stories. In his introduction John Seelye examines Stevenson's life and influences and the novel's place within adventure fiction. This edition also includes Stevenson's essay on the composition of Treasure Island. Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) was born in Edinburgh, the son of a prosperous civil engineer. Although he began his career as an essayist and travel writer, the success of Treasure Island(1883) and Kidnapped (1886) established his reputation as a writer of tales of action and adventure. Stevenson's Calvinist upbringing lent him a preoccupation with predestination and a fascination with the presence of evil, themes he explored in The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde(1886), and The Master of Ballantrae(1893).

La isla del tesoro es sinónimo de emoción y libertad. Robert Louis Stevenson apenas rebasaba la treintena cuando la publicó en 1881, y no podía imaginar que su creación se iba a convertir en un éxito que marcaría para siempre las vidas de varias generaciones de lectores, ni que Jim Hawkins y John Silver el Largo se convertirían en unos personajes tan míticos como los célebres piratas Barbanegra o William Kidd. Esta obra nos transporta a una infancia feliz y evoca todo lo que se espera de una novela de aventuras: tesoros escondidos, motines, tabernas, canciones, y olor a mar, pólvora y ron. La isla del tesoro is synonymous with freedom, excitement, and adventure. Robert Louis Stevenson was in his early 30s when he published this classic in 1881, and he could not have imagined the success or ongoing impact it would have on future writers, nor that Jim Hawkins and Long John Silver would become characters as well-known as the famous pirates Blackbeard and William Kidd.

"Jim," says he, "rum"; and as he spoke, he reeled a little, and caught himself with one hand against the wall. "Are you hurt?" cried I. "Rum," he repeated. "I must get away from here. Rum Rum " I ran to fetch it, but I was quite unsteadied by all that had fallen out, and I broke one glass and fouled the tap, and while I was still getting in my own way, I heard a loud fall in the parlor, and running in, beheld the captain lying full length upon the floor.

Treasure Island is an adventure novel by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, narrating a tale of "buccaneers and buried gold". It was originally serialized in the children's magazine Young Folks between 1881 through 1882 under the title Treasure Island, or the mutiny of the Hispaniola, credited to the pseudonym "Captain George North". It was first published as a book on 14 November 1883 by Cassell & Co.Treasure Island is traditionally considered a coming-of-age story, and is noted for its atmosphere, characters, and action. It is also noted as a wry commentary on the ambiguity of morality-as seen in Long John Silver-unusual for children's literature. It is one of the most frequently dramatized of all novels. Its influence is enormous on popular perceptions of pirates, including such elements as treasure maps marked with an "X", schooners, the Black Spot, tropical islands, and one-legged seamen bearing parrots on their shoulders.Plot summary--PART I-"THE OLD BUCCANEER"An old sailor, calling himself "the captain"-real name "Billy" Bones-comes to lodge at the Admiral Benbow Inn on the west English coast during the mid-1700s, paying the innkeeper's son, Jim Hawkins, a few pennies to keep a lookout for a one-legged "seafaring man." A seaman with intact legs shows up, frightening Billy-who drinks far too much rum-into a stroke, and Billy tells Jim that his former shipmates covet the contents of his sea chest. After a visit from yet another man, Billy has another stroke and dies; Jim and his mother (his father has also died just a few days before) unlock the sea chest, finding some money, a journal, and a map. The local physician, Dr. Livesey, deduces that the map is of an island where a deceased pirate-Captain Flint-buried a vast treasure. The district squire, Trelawney, proposes buying a ship and going after the treasure, taking Livesey as ship's doctor and Jim as cabin boy.PART II-"THE SEA COOK"Several weeks later, Trelawney sends for Jim and Livesey and introduces them to "Long John" Silver, a one-legged Bristol tavern-keeper whom he has hired as ship's cook. (Silver enhances his outre attributes-crutch, pirate argot, etc.-with a talking parrot.) They also meet Captain Smollett, who tells them that he dislikes most of the crew on the voyage, which it seems everyone in Bristol knows is a search for treasure. After taking a few precautions, however, they set sail on Trelawny's schooner, the Hispaniola, for the distant island. During the voyage the first mate, a drunkard, disappears overboard. And just before the island is sighted, Jim-concealed in an apple barrel-overhears Silver talking with two other crewmen. They are all former "gentlemen o'fortune" (pirates) in Flint's crew and have planned a mutiny. Jim alerts the captain, doctor, and squire, and they calculate that they will be seven to 19 against the mutineers and must pretend not to suspect anything until the treasure is found, when they can surprise their adversaries.PART III-"MY SHORE ADVENTURE"But after the ship is anchored, Silver and some of the others go ashore, and two men who refuse to join the mutiny are killed-one with so loud a scream that everyone realizes there can be no more pretense. Jim has impulsively joined the shore party and covertly witnessed Silver committing one of the murders; now, in fleeing, he encounters a half-crazed Englishman, Ben Gunn, who tells him he was marooned here and can help against the mutineers in return for passage home and part of the treasure......Robert Louis Balfour Stevenson (13 November 1850 - 3 December 1894) was a Scottish novelist, poet, essayist, and travel writer. His most famous works are Treasure Island, Kidnapped, Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and A Child's Garden of Verses.

A mysterious visitor to his parent's inn precipitates a chain of events that plunges Jim Hawkins into an unforgettable adventure among ruthless pirates seeking a fabulous treasure hidden on a desert island. Initially serialized in a magazine, Treasure Island first appeared as a book in 1883. Narrated primarily by young Jim Hawkins, the book can be seen as a coming of age story or a thriller for younger readers, but it is a swashbuckling delight for most anyone willing to pick it up. One of the central pleasures of the book is the indelible character of Long John Silver. Manipulative, self-centered, and greedy enough to be purely a villain, he proves such an engaging character that it is hard to feel much ill will toward him. With his missing leg, parrot, and treasure map, Silver is the forefather of countless fictional pirates of prose and film. Treasure Island is, arguably, both the genesis and zenith of the pirate adventure story. The novel has been repeatedly adapted to stage, radio, film and television. First filmed in 1918, Treasure Island has been the subject of more than fifty movies and has been translated into science fiction, western, anime and a feature for Jim Henson's Muppets. All of this springs from the enduring base of Stevenson's original novel. This is pure storytelling at its most ageless, powerful and beguiling. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Treasure Island is both modern and readable.

While going through the possessions of a deceased guest who owed them money, the mistress of the inn and her son find a treasure map that leads them to a pirate's fortune.Robert Louis (Balfour) Stevenson (November 13, 1850-December 3, 1894), was a Scottish novelist, poet, and travel writer, and a leading representative of Neo-romanticism in English literature. He was the man who "seemed to pick the right word up on the point of his pen, like a man playing spillikins", as G. K. Chesterton put it. He was also greatly admired by many authors, including Jorge Luis Borges, Ernest Hemingway, Rudyard Kipling and Vladimir Nabokov. Most modernist writers dismissed him, however, because he was popular and did not write within their narrow definition of literature. It is only recently that critics have begun to look beyond Stevenson's popularity and allow him a place in the canon.Source: Wikipedia

Alfred Molina's narration is like pulling up a chair next to a fire on a chilly night and being chilled all over again by Stevenson's tale of piracy on the high seas. Molina's portrayals are perfection.

Join this cast for a fantastic adventure and treasure hunt, but watch out for the Black Spot-a card with a circular black spot in the middle given to an accused. It means the pirate will be overturned as leader, by force if necessary-or else killed outright. Not impressed? You should be-after all, just being tipped with the Black Spot scared poor Billy Bones to death.

When a mysterious sailor dies in sinister circ*mstances at the Admiral Benbow inn, young Jim Hawkins stumbles across a treasure map among the dead man's possessions. But Jim soon becomes only too aware that he is not the only one who knows of the map's existence, and his bravery and cunning are tested to the full when, with his friends Squire Trelawney and Dr Livesey, he sets sail in the Hispaniola to track down the treasure. With its swift-moving plot and memorably drawn characters -- Blind Pew and Black Dog, the castaway Ben Gunn and the charming but dangerous Long John Silver -- Stevenson's tale of pirates, treachery and heroism was an immediate success when it was first published in 1883 and has retained its place as one of the greatest of all adventure stories.

Excerpt: ... at. Would it not be wiser to take it in?" "Strike my colours " cried the captain. "No, sir, not I"; and as soon as he had said the words, I think we all agreed with him. For it was not only a piece of stout, seamanly, good feeling; it was good policy besides and showed our enemies that we despised their cannonade. All through the evening they kept thundering away. Ball after ball flew over or fell short or kicked up the sand in the enclosure, but they had to fire so high that the shot fell dead and buried itself in the soft sand. We had no ricochet to fear, and though one popped in through the roof of the log-house and out again through the floor, we soon got used to that sort of horse-play and minded it no more than cricket. "There is one good thing about all this," observed the captain; "the wood in front of us is likely clear. The ebb has made a good while; our stores should be uncovered. Volunteers to go and bring in pork." Gray and Hunter were the first to come forward. Well armed, they stole out of the stockade, but it proved a useless mission. The mutineers were bolder than we fancied or they put more trust in Israel's gunnery. For four or five of them were busy carrying off our stores and wading out with them to one of the gigs that lay close by, pulling an oar or so to hold her steady against the current. Silver was in the stern-sheets in command; and every man of them was now provided with a musket from some secret magazine of their own. The captain sat down to his log, and here is the beginning of the entry: Alexander Smollett, master; David Livesey, ship's doctor; Abraham Gray, carpenter's mate; John Trelawney, owner; John Hunter and Richard Joyce, owner's servants, landsmen

First published as a book on 23 May 1883, it was originally serialized in the children's magazine Young Folks between 1881 and 1882 under the title Treasure Island or, the mutiny of the Hispaniola with Stevenson adopting the pseudonym Captain George North. Traditionally considered a coming-of-age story, Treasure Island is a tale noted for its atmosphere, characters and action, and also as a wry commentary on the ambiguity of morality - as seen in Long John Silver - unusual for children's literature. It is one of the most frequently dramatized of all novels. The influence of Treasure Island on popular perceptions of pirates is enormous, including such elements as treasure maps marked with an "X", schooners, the Black Spot, tropical islands, and one-legged seamen bearing parrots on their shoulders.

CHAPTER XXIX THE BLACK SPOT AGAIN Thb council of the buccaneers had lasted some time when one of them re-entered the house, and with a repetition of the same salute, which had in my eyes an ironical air, begged for a moment's loan of the torch. Silver briefly agreed; and this emissary retired again, leaving us together in the dark. "There's a breeze coming, Jim," said Silver, who had, by this time, adopted quite a friendly and familiar tone. I turned to the loophole nearest me and looked out. The embers of the great fire had so far burned themselves out, and now glowed so low and duskily, that I understood why these conspirators desired a torch. About half way down the slope to the stockade, they were collected in a group; one held the light; another was on his knees in their midst, and I saw the blade of an open knife shine in his hand with varying colours, in the moon and torchlight. The rest were all somewhat stooping, as though watching the manoeuvres of tb'j last. I could just make out that he had a book -, veil as a knife in his hand; and was still wondering how anything so incongruous had come in their possession, when the kneeling figure rose once more to his feet, and the whole party began to move together towards the house. "Here they come," said I; and I returned to my former position, for it seemed beneath my dignity that they should find me watching them. "Well, let 'em come, lad--let 'em come," said Silver, cheerily. "I've still a shot in my locker." The door opened, and the five men, standing huddled together just inside, pushed one of their number forward. In any other circ*mstances it would have been comical to see his slow advance, hesitating as he set down each foot, but holding his closed right hand in front of him. "Step up, lad," cried Silver.

Anglès | Descripció proveïda per Bowker | score: 3

First published as a serialized children's story in 1881-1882, Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island has become an enduring classic. It has all the elements of a great adventure story: a plot full of twists and turns, an escalating sense of treachery and impending disaster, and a quintessential villain. Teenager Jim Hawkins finds a map titled "Treasure Island" in the belongings of a stricken lodger at the Admiral Benbow Inn in 1750s England. He soon finds himself aboard the schooner Hispaniola with a crew of disguised pirates headed to the Caribbean on a quest to find buried treasure. Long John Silver, the peg-legged cook, is the leader of this wretched crew. He is both engaging and ruthless, feared by even his barbarous accomplices, and a shape-shifter, pretending to be Jim's good friend and enemy, secretly plotting a mutiny. When mutiny begins, Jim must save the day.This beloved adventure story is pure fiction--but fiction well grounded in historical and geographical reality. In The Annotated Treasure Island, editor and researcher Simon Barker-Benfield meticulously and lovingly annotates this voyage, offering crucial factual information, a sociopolitical context, and clear technical explanations that bring you closer to the action. Lavishly illustrated with pictures of nautical equipment, parts of ships, and period maps, The Annotated Treasure Island brings the seafaring vernacular to life. You'll learn about "blocks," "backstays," and "shrouds." And you'll see Jim and the crew handle the Hispaniola, whether it's the "simple" chore of raising the anchor--which in a similar, real vessel could require three hours'-worth of hauling in a very slimy cable six inches at a time--or the difficulty and meaning of "warping" and "putting a man in the chains" in order to take depth soundings. The story illustrations by Louis Rhead (1857-1926) deftly draw out the escalating dramatic tension. Would all the risk and hardship have been worth it? Just how much treasure was the crew after? What could one have bought with 700,000 pounds sterling in the 1700s? Even that question is answered in this newly annotated edition: it would have been enough to buy and outfit a fleet of eleven 104-gun battleships of the period.Seven hundred thousand pounds sterling was serious money, enough money that some men would do almost anything to get it.

An old drunken seaman named Billy Bones becomes a long-term lodger at the inn, only paying for about the first week of his stay. Jim quickly realizes that Bones is in hiding, and that he particularly dreads meeting an unidentified seafaring man with one leg. Some months later, Bones is visited by a mysterious sailor named Black Dog. Their meeting turns violent, Black Dog flees and Bones suffers a stroke. While Jim cares for him, Bones confesses that he was once the mate of a notorious late pirate, Captain Flint, and that his old crew-mates want Bones' sea chest. Some time later, another of Bones' crew mates, a blind man named Pew, appears at the inn and forces Jim to lead him to Bones. Pew gives Bones a paper. After Pew leaves, Bones opens the paper to discover it is marked with the Black Spot, a pirate summons, with the warning that he has until ten o'clock to meet their demands. Bones drops dead of apoplexy (in this context, a stroke) on the spot. Jim and his mother open Bones' sea chest to collect the amount due to them for Bones' room and board, but before they can count out the money that they are owed, they hear pirates approaching the inn and are forced to flee and hide, Jim taking with him a mysterious oilskin packet from the chest. The pirates, led by Pew, find the sea chest and the money, but are frustrated that there is no sign of "Flint's fist". Customs men approach and the pirates escape to their vessel, all except for Pew, who is accidentally run down and killed by the agents' horses.... (Excerpt from Wikipedia)

"Fifteen men on the Dead Man's Chest Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum! Drink and the devil had done for the rest Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!" The most popular pirate story ever written in English, featuring one of literature's most beloved "bad guys," Treasure Island has been happily devoured by several generations of boys-and girls-and grownups. The story is told by Jim Hawkins, a young boy who learns of the whereabouts of a buried treasure from the papers of an old sailor staying at his mother's inn. He shows the treasure map to Dr. Livesey and Squire Trelawney, and the three determine to find it. They fit out a ship, the schooner Hispaniola, hire hands, and set off for Treasure Island. Among the ship's crew are Long John Silver and some of his followers, who are after the treasure for themselves... The unexpected and complex relationship that develops between Silver and Jim helps transform what seems at first to be a simple, rip-roaring adventure story into a deeply moving study of a boy's growth into manhood, as he learns hard lessons about friendship, loyalty, courage and honor-and the uncertain meaning of good and evil.

Treasure Island is a classic adventure novel by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson. Treasure Island is a classic pirate tale that starts with an old pirate sailor, calling himself "the captain"-real name "Billy" Bones-comes to lodge at the Admiral Benbow Inn on the west English coast during the mid-1700s, paying the innkeeper's son, Jim Hawkins, a few pennies to keep a lookout for a one-legged "seafaring man." A seaman with intact legs shows up, frightening Billy-who drinks far too much rum-into a stroke, and Billy tells Jim that his former shipmates covet the contents of his sea chest. The story of Treasure Island then moves on ... After a visit from yet another man, Billy has another stroke and dies; Jim and his mother (his father has also died just a few days before) unlock the sea chest, finding some money, a journal, and a pirate map. The local physician, Dr. Livesey, deduces that the map is of an island where a deceased pirate-Captain Flint-buried a vast treasure. The district squire, Trelawney, proposes buying a ship and going after the treasure and the search for treasure Island begins, taking Livesey as ship's doctor and Jim as cabin boy.Treasure Island is a classic pirate story for adults and children alike.

Treasure Island is an adventure novel by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, narrating a tale of "buccaneers and buried gold". First published as a book on 23 May 1883, it was originally serialized in the children's magazine Young Folks between 1881 and 1882 under the title Treasure Island or, the mutiny of the Hispaniola with Stevenson adopting the pseudonym Captain George North.Traditionally considered a coming-of-age story, Treasure Island is a tale known for its atmosphere, characters and action, and also as a wry commentary on the ambiguity of morality as seen in Long John Silver unusual for children's literature. It is one of the most frequently dramatized of all novels. The influence of Treasure Island on popular perceptions of pirates is enormous, including treasure maps marked with an "X", schooners, the Black Spot, tropical islands, and one-legged seamen carrying parrots on their shoulders.There have been over 50 movie and TV versions, over 24 major stage and radio adaptations as well as book adaptions and comics made.Robert Louis Balfour Stevenson (1850-1894) was a Scottish novelist, poet, essayist, and travel writer. His most famous works are Treasure Island, Kidnapped, and Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.A literary celebrity during his lifetime, Stevenson now ranks among the 26 most translated authors in the world, ahead of fellow nineteenth-century writers Oscar Wilde and Edgar Allan Poe. His works have been admired by many other writers, including Jorge Luis Borges, Ernest Hemingway, Rudyard Kipling, Marcel Schwob, Vladimir Nabokov, J. M. Barrie, and G. K. Chesterton, who said of him that he "seemed to pick the right word up on the point of his pen, like a man playing spillikins." [Elib]

TREASURE ISLAND... Peg legs and parrots, buried treasure, the "Jolly Roger" and "fifteen men on a dead man's chest"... with Treasure Island Robert Louis Stevenson indelibly marked forever the perception of pirates for future generations. The tale that became Treasure Island began with a "treasure map" drawn for his 12-year-old stepson and the pirate story Stevenson spun to go along with the map. Published in serial form in 1881 and 1882 and in book form in 1883, Treasure Island brought him widespread popularity, launched his career as a profitable writer, and by the end of the 1880s, was one of the era's most widely read books. One of the world's truly beloved books, it has been widely read in many languages since its original appearance, and the story is one of the best-known around the world thanks to endless reprintings and translations, as well as films, comics, television and numerous other adaptations. Beginning with the appearance of an old seaman, Billy Bones, at the Admiral Benbow Inn run by his family, young Jim Hawkins is drawn into a great adventure: the search for the treasure of the legendary (and entirely fictional) pirate Captain Flint, buried on a remote island. Probably the most unforgettable character is the wooden-legged, parrot toting seaman, Long John Silver, utterly amoral and without scruples, ruthless and violent, but undeniably possessed of courage and quick wits, an unusual character for young readers' literature then, and even now. ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON... Robert Louis Stevenson was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, on November 13, 1850. A sickly child, Stevenson was often unable to attend school for lengthy intervals. Although he did not read until he was seven or eight years old, Stevenson had begun dictating stories to his mother at a very early age. Stevenson's first book of short fiction, New Arabian Nights (1882), was one of the United Kingdom's earliest successful collections of short stories, a literary form which had previously been dominated by Russian, American and French writers. The 1880s witnessed both a marked decline in Stevenson's health and the most productive period of his career. Bedridden with increasing frequency and for longer durations, writing was one of the few activities he could manage, and while in this condition he wrote the bulk of his most enduring and popular fiction. In 1888 Stevenson and his family set sail from San Francisco to travel the islands of the Pacific Ocean. In 1889 they arrived in Samoa, where they settled and built a house. The island setting stimulated Stevenson's imagination and influenced his writing. Several of his later works are about the Pacific isles. Although best known for his fiction and, to a lesser extent, nonfiction, Stevenson was also an accomplished poet and a proficient musical composer. Robert Louis Stevenson died, probably as a result of a cerebral hemorrhage, on December 3, 1894, at his home in Vailima, Samoa. He was forty-four years old.

"Zimmerman has powerfully captured the joy, danger, and fantasy of Stevenson's novel. . . Pure fun, a potent coming-of-age story, and a rollicking swashbuckler."--San Francisco Chronicle In Treasure Island, Tony Award winner and inventive adapter-director Mary Zimmerman has penned a spirited, energetic adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's most beloved novel, proving again that "a strong story full of larger-than-life characters and the quest for filthy lucre has no age barrier" (Chicago Sun-Times). Enlivened by rum, mutiny, and buried treasure, Treasure Island is the classic pirates' tale, widely regarded as the forerunner of this genre. After discovering a treasure map, young Jim Hawkins sets off to sea as cabin boy aboard the Hispaniola, where he encounters one of the most unforgettable characters in literary history--peg-legged buccaneer Long John Silver, a malicious mutineer and charismatic father figure.

Stevenson created other novels, with greater depth and insight, but the highlight of Treasure Island is the combination of colorful and poetic prose that distinguishes his tale of piracy and boyhood adventure from the rest of the field of other adventure books. ¡¡¡Treasure Island is one of the most popular pirate stories of all time!!!

It is one of the most frequently dramatized of all novels. The influence of Treasure Island on popular perceptions of pirates is enormous, including such elements as treasure maps marked with an "X", schooners, the Black Spot, tropical islands, and one-legged seamen bearing parrots on their shoulders.Robert Louis Balfour Stevenson (13 November 1850 - 3 December 1894) was a Scottish novelist, poet, essayist, and travel writer. His most famous works are Treasure Island, Kidnapped, and Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.A literary celebrity during his lifetime, Stevenson now ranks among the 26 most translated authors in the world.[1] His works have been admired by many other writers, including Jorge Luis Borges, Bertolt Brecht, Marcel Proust, Arthur Conan Doyle, Henry James, Cesare Pavese, Ernest Hemingway, Rudyard Kipling, Jack London, Vladimir Nabokov, J. M. Barrie, and G. K. Chesterton, who said of him that he "seemed to pick the right word up on the point of his pen, like a man playing spillikins."In late 1873, on a visit to a cousin in England, Stevenson met two people who were to be of great importance to him, Sidney Colvin and Fanny (Frances Jane) Sitwell. Sitwell was a 34-year-old woman with a son, separated from her husband. She attracted the devotion of many who met her, including Colvin, who eventually married her in 1901. Stevenson was also drawn to her, and over several years they kept up a heated correspondence in which Stevenson wavered between the role of a suitor and a son (he came to address her as "Madonna"). Colvin became Stevenson's literary adviser and after his death was the first editor of Stevenson's letters. Soon after their first meeting, he had placed Stevenson's first paid contribution, an essay entitled "Roads," in The Portfolio. Stevenson was soon active in London literary life, becoming acquainted with many of the writers of the time, including Andrew Lang, Edmund Gosse, and Leslie Stephen, the editor of the Cornhill Magazine, who took an interest in Stevenson's work. Stephen in turn would introduce him to a more important friend. Visiting Edinburgh in 1875, he took Stevenson with him to visit a patient at the Edinburgh Infirmary, William Ernest Henley. Henley, an energetic and talkative man with a wooden leg, became a close friend and occasional literary collaborator, until a quarrel broke up the friendship in 1888. Henley is often seen as the model for Long John Silver in Treasure Island.Stevenson was a celebrity in his own time, but with the rise of modern literature after World War I, he was seen for much of the 20th century as a writer of the second class, relegated to children's literature and horror genres. Condemned by literary figures such as Virginia Woolf (daughter of his early mentor Leslie Stephen) and her husband Leonard, he was gradually excluded from the canon of literature taught in schools. His exclusion reached a height when in the 1973 2,000-page Oxford Anthology of English Literature Stevenson was entirely unmentioned; and The Norton Anthology of English Literature excluded him from 1968 to 2000 (1st-7th editions), including him only in the 8th edition (2006).

"Fifteen men on the dead man's chest- Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!"in the high, old tottering voice that seemed to have been tuned and broken at the capstan bars. Then he rapped on the door with a bit of stick like a handspike that he carried, and when my father appeared, called roughly for a glass of rum. This, when it was brought to him, he drank slowly, like a connoisseur, lingering on the taste and still looking about him at the cliffs and up at our signboard. "This is a handy cove," says he at length; "and a pleasant sittyated grog-shop. Much company, mate?" My father told him no, very little company, the more was the pity. "Well, then," said he, "this is the berth for me. Here you, matey," he cried to the man who trundled the barrow; "bring up alongside and help up my chest. I'll stay here a bit," he continued. "I'm a plain man; rum and bacon and eggs is what I want, and that head up there for to watch ships off. What you mought call me? You mought call me captain. Oh, I see what you're at-there"; and he threw down three or four gold pieces on the threshold. "You can tell me when I've worked through that," says he, looking as fierce as a commander. And indeed bad as his clothes were and coarsely as he spoke, he had none of the appearance of a man who sailed before the mast, but seemed like a mate or skipper accustomed to be obeyed or to strike. The man who came with the barrow told us the mail had set him down the morning before at the Royal George, that he had inquired what inns there were along the coast, and hearing ours well spoken of, I suppose, and described as lonely, had chosen it from the others for his place of residence. And that was all we could learn of our guest.

Treasure Island is perhaps THE classic pirate's tale. Robert Louis Stevenson, the author, created a rich story of adventure and treachery on the high seas all seen through the eyes of a boy named Jim Hawkins. Jim starts off as the son of tavern owners in a humble little port village. When an old seaman stays at the tavern, trouble soon follows him in the form of a pirate crew seeking revenge. Events move forward to a great treasure hunt, treachery, and a surprisingly engaging story for adults as well as children. Jim Hawkins is the hero of the story and he's a good lad with a stout heart. Long John Silver is the real star, however, and his character is a fascinating character study in moral ambiguity... or perhaps a study in amoral perfection. The pirate language is good and thick, and the plot moves along very briskly with no wasted scenes. In short, Treasure Island well deserves its status as a beloved classic. It's a story of suspense and adventure that can be enjoyed at a child's level, but has substance for adults as well.

First published as a book on May 23, 1883, it was originally serialized in the children's magazine Young Folks between 1881-82 under the title Treasure Island or, the mutiny of the Hispaniola with Stevenson adopting the pseudonym Captain George North. The novel is divided into 6 parts and 34 chapters: Jim Hawkins is the narrator of all except for chapters 16-18, which are narrated by Doctor Livesey.The novel opens in the seaside village of Black Hill Cove in south-west England (to Stevenson, in his letters[2] and in the related fictional play Admiral Guinea,[3] near Barnstaple, Devon) in the mid-18th century. The narrator, James "Jim" Hawkins, is the young son of the owners of the Admiral Benbow Inn. An old drunken seaman named Billy Bones becomes a long-term lodger at the inn, only paying for about the first week of his stay. Jim quickly realizes that Bones is in hiding, and that he particularly dreads meeting an unidentified seafaring man with one leg. Some months later, Bones is visited by a mysterious sailor named Black Dog. Their meeting turns violent, Black Dog flees and Bones suffers a stroke. While Jim cares for him, Bones confesses that he was once the mate of the late notorious pirate, Captain Flint, and that his old crewmates want Bones' sea chest. Some time later, another of Bones' crew mates, a blind man named Pew, appears at the inn and forces Jim to lead him to Bones. Pew gives Bones a paper. After Pew leaves, Bones opens the paper to discover it is marked with the Black Spot, a pirate summons, with the warning that he has until ten o'clock to meet their demands. Bones drops dead of apoplexy (in this context, a stroke) on the spot. Jim and his mother open Bones' sea chest to collect the amount due to them for Bones' room and board, but before they can count out the money that they are owed, they hear pirates approaching the inn and are forced to flee and hide, Jim taking with him a mysterious oilskin packet from the chest. The pirates, led by Pew, find the sea chest and the money, but are frustrated that there is no sign of "Flint's fist". Customs men approach and the pirates escape to their vessel (all except for Pew, who is accidentally run down and killed by the agents' horses).p. 27-8: "...{{Pew}} made another dash, now utterly bewildered, right under the nearest of the coming horses. The rider tried to save him, but in vain. Down went Pew with a cry that rang high into the night; and the four hoofs trampled and spurned him and passed by. He fell on his side, then gently collapsed upon his face, and moved no more." -Stevenson, R.L.Jim takes the mysterious oilskin packet to Dr. Livesey, as he is a "gentleman and a magistrate", and he, Squire Trelawney and Jim Hawkins examine it together, finding it contains a logbook detailing the treasure looted during Captain Flint's career, and a detailed map of an island with the location of Flint's treasure marked on it. Squire Trelawney immediately plans to commission a sailing vessel to hunt for the treasure, with the help of Dr. Livesey and Jim. Livesey warns Trelawney to be silent about their objective. Going to Bristol docks, Trelawney buys a schooner named the Hispaniola, hires a captain, Alexander Smollett to command her.

Treasure Island was first a map that Stevenson drew for the amusem*nt of his stepson. The map proved so interesting that he created a story to go along with it, reading installments of the story to his family as he finished them. Stevenson's father, who happened to be visiting on the day of one of those readings, became so attracted to the story that he made plot suggestions, at least two of which were followed (the contents of Billy Bones's trunk and Jim Hawkins in the apple barrel).The novel was published in serial form in a boys' magazine,Young Folks, and it follows the format of the standard boys' adventure novel: A boy is drawn into a fantastic, dangerous adventure, but through courage, integrity, and the help of a heroic mentor, he comes through the adventure unscathed, wiser, and more mature.Stevenson, however, improvises on this theme. His hero, Jim Hawkins, gets hold of a map made by a famous pirate, Captain Flint, to show the location of a large treasure that Flint had buried....

This is the Original and unabridged text of Treasure Island which remains one of literature's best loved adventure stories. Treasure Island, an adventure novel by Robert Louis Stevenson, is a tale of "buccaneers and buried gold"."If this don't fetch the kids, why, they have gone rotten since my day. Will you be surprised to learn that it is about Buccaneers...that it's all about a map, and a treasure, and a mutiny, and a derelict ship...and a one-legged sea-cook."Treasure Island remains one of literature's best loved adventure stories. It was first published under the title Treasure Island or, the mutiny of the Hispaniola with Stevenson adopting the pseudonym Captain George North.Traditionally considered a coming-of-age story, Treasure Island is a tale noted for its atmosphere, characters and action, and also as a wry commentary on the ambiguity of morality - as seen in Long John Silver - unusual for children's literature. It is one of the most frequently dramatized of all novels. The influence of Treasure Island on popular perceptions of pirates is enormous, including such elements as treasure maps marked with an "X", schooners, the Black Spot, tropical islands, and one-legged seamen bearing parrots on their shoulders.

It is one of the most frequently dramatized of all novels. The influence of Treasure Island on popular perceptions of pirates is enormous, including treasure maps marked with an "X", schooners, the Black Spot, tropical islands, and one-legged seamen carrying parrots on their shoulders.Short Summary of the Book:The novel is divided into six parts and 34 chapters: The novel opens in the seaside village of Black Hill Cove in south-west England (to Stevenson, in his letters and in the related fictional play Admiral Guinea, near Barnstaple, Devon) in the mid-18th century. The narrator, James "Jim" Hawkins, is the young son of the owners of the Admiral Benbow Inn. An old drunken seaman named Billy Bones becomes a long-term lodger at the inn, only paying for about the first week of his stay. Jim quickly realizes that Bones is in hiding, and that he particularly dreads meeting an unidentified seafaring man with one leg. Some months later, Bones is visited by a mysterious sailor named Black Dog. Their meeting turns violent, Black Dog flees and Bones suffers a stroke. While Jim cares for him, Bones confesses that he was once the mate of a notorious late pirate, Captain Flint, and that his old crewmates want Bones' sea chest. Some time later, another of Bones' crew mates, a blind man named Pew, appears at the inn and forces Jim to lead him to Bones. Pew gives Bones a paper. After Pew leaves, Bones opens the paper to discover it is marked with the Black Spot, a pirate summons, with the warning that he has until ten o'clock to meet their demands. Bones drops dead of apoplexy (in this context, a stroke) on the spot. Jim and his mother open Bones' sea chest to collect the amount due to them for Bones' room and board, but before they can count out the money that they are owed, they hear pirates approaching the inn and are forced to flee and hide, Jim taking with him a mysterious oilskin packet from the chest. The pirates, led by Pew, find the sea chest and the money, but are frustrated that there is no sign of "Flint's fist". Customs men approach and the pirates escape to their vessel (all except for Pew, who is accidentally run down and killed by the agents' horses).

Treasure Island is an adventure novel by author Robert Louis Stevenson, narrating a tale of "buccaneers and buried gold". Its influence is enormous on popular perceptions of pirates, including such elements as treasure maps marked with an "X", schooners, the Black Spot, tropical islands, and one-legged seamen bearing parrots on their shoulders.Treasure Island was originally considered a coming-of-age story and is noted for its atmosphere, characters, and action. It is one of the most frequently dramatized of all novels. It was originally serialized in the children's magazine Young Folks between 1881 through 1882 under the title Treasure Island, or the mutiny of the Hispaniola, credited to the pseudonym "Captain George North". It was first published as a book on 14 November 1883, by Cassell & Co.Stevenson conceived the idea of Treasure Island (originally titled, "The Sea Cook: A Story for Boys") from a map of an imaginary, romantic island idly drawn by Stevenson and his stepson Lloyd Osbourne on a rainy day in Braemar, Scotland. Stevenson had just returned from his first stay in America, with memories of poverty, illness, and adventure (including his recent marriage), and a warm reconciliation between his parents had been established. Stevenson himself said in designing the idea of the story that, "It was to be a story for boys; no need of psychology or fine writing; and I had a boy at hand to be a touchstone. Women were excluded... and then I had an idea for Long John Silver from which I promised myself funds of entertainment; to take an admired friend of mine... to deprive him of all his finer qualities and higher graces of temperament, and to leave him with nothing but his strength, his courage, his quickness, and his magnificent geniality, and to try to express these in terms of the culture of a raw tarpaulin." Completing 15 chapters in as many days, Stevenson was interrupted by illness and, after leaving Scotland, continued working on the first draft outside London. While there, his father provided additional impetus, as the two discussed points of the tale, and Stevenson's father was the one who suggested the scene of Jim in the apple barrel and the name of Walrus for Captain Flint's ship.Two general types of sea novels were popular during the 19th century: the navy yarn, which places a capable officer in adventurous situations amid realistic settings and historical events; and the desert island romance, which features shipwrecked or marooned characters confronted by treasure-seeking pirates or angry natives. Around 1815, the latter genre became one of the most popular fictional styles in Great Britain, perhaps because of the philosophical interest in Rousseau and Chateaubriand's "noble savage." It is obvious that Treasure Island was a climax of this development. The growth of the desert island genre can be traced back to 1719 when Daniel Defoe's legendary Robinson Crusoe was published. A century later, novels such as S. H. Burney's The Shipwreck (1816), and Sir Walter Scott's The Pirate (1822) continued to expand upon the strong influence of Defoe's classic. Other authors, however, in the mid 19th-century, continued this work, including James Fenimore Cooper's The Pilot (1823). During the same period, Edgar Allan Poe wrote, "MS Found in a Bottle" (1833) and the intriguing tale of buried treasure, "The Gold-Bug" (1843). All of these works influenced Stevenson's end product.Specifically, however, Stevenson consciously borrowed material from previous authors. In a July 1884 letter to Sidney Colvin, he writes "Treasure Island came out of Kingsley's At Last, where I got the Dead Man's Chest-and that was the seed-and out of the great Captain Johnson's History of the Notorious Pirates." Stevenson also admits that he took the idea of Captain Flint's skeleton point from Poe's "The Gold-Bug," and he constructed Billy Bones' history from the pages of Washington Irving, one of his favorite writers.

Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) may have traveled more than the characters in some of his critically acclaimed and world renowned novels. Stevenson was a Scottish novelist, poet, and traveling writer who wore classics like Kidnapped and Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. Stevenson was so accomplished that he was a celebrity during his lifetime, and he left an influence on great writers who followed him, including Hemingway and Kipling. At the same time, his works are easy enough to read that they can be taught in classrooms across the world to teenagers. One of his most popular books is Treasure Island, which all but created every stereotype now associated with pirates. The book is a coming of age adventure that mixes character studies, action, a vivid setting, and commentary on the ambiguity of morality, as embodied by the memorable Long John Silver. Its influence on the popularity of historical pirates is unmistakable, with its inclusion of treasure maps where X marks the spot, schooners, tropical islands, and one legged pirates with parrots on their shoulders.

After a visit from another man, Billy has another stroke and dies; Jim and his mother (his father has died only a few days before) unlock the sea chest, finding some money, a journal, and a map.

Summary: An old sailor, calling himself "the captain"-real name "Billy" Bones-comes to lodge at the Admiral Benbow Inn on the west English coast during the mid-1700s, paying the innkeeper's son, Jim Hawkins, a few pennies to keep a lookout for a one-legged "seafaring man." A seaman with intact legs shows up, frightening Billy-who drinks far too much rum-into a stroke, and Billy tells Jim that his former shipmates covet the contents of his sea chest. After a visit from yet another man, Billy has another stroke and dies; Jim and his mother (his father has also died just a few days before) unlock the sea chest, finding some money, a journal, and a map. The local physician, Dr. Livesey, deduces that the map is of an island where a deceased pirate-Captain Flint-buried a vast treasure. The district squire, Trelawney, proposes buying a ship and going after the treasure, taking Livesey as ship's doctor and Jim as cabin boy. No matter how was on real life, Robert Louis Stevenson, the author, was able to show a romantic picture of pirates' world with now iconic elements like islands with treasures, maps with "x"'s, fearful papers with a black spot, peglegs, eye patches, parrots on shoulders, but above all, he had no doubt to show how dangerous and murderous can be real pirates. Characters like Jim Hawkins, Billy Bones, Ben Gunn, Captain Smollett and of course, Long John Silver from this book have become iconic in the universe of literature. Even they have been so admired that other authors couldn't resist to make homages/mentions of them on their own novels, such examples like on Peter Pan.

At the start of Treasure Island, Jim Hawkins is living with his mother and father at their inn, the Admiral Benbow. Life is pretty ordinary - Jim's father is sick, which sucks, but other than that, there isn't much going on for him. Until, that is, a sunburned sailor singing, "Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum!" comes through the front door of the family establishment. This sailor calls himself a captain and demands a room. He proceeds to settle down at the Admiral Benbow Inn, drink a ton of whiskey, and tell terrifying stories about life on the high seas.One day, after an old shipmate named Black Dog manages to track down the captain, he gets so worked up that he has a stroke. The captain starts hallucinating and raving about his old life as a pirate. Apparently, the captain isn't a captain at all: his name is Billy Bones, and he was second in command to someone named Captain Flint. Jim doesn't have much time to care about the captain's crazy talk, though: his father dies that same night.The day after Jim's father's funeral, a blind man appears at the Inn looking for the captain. This man is Pew, and he orders that the captain meet his old shipmates at 10 o'clock that night. The blind man leaves, the captain jumps up, and then he falls over dead from a heart attack. After some shenanigans with Pew and a bunch of pirates who try to steal Billy Bones's sea chest, Jim comes away with a packet of papers from Billy Bones. He decides to bring the papers to Doctor Livesey, the local judge.Jim finds Doctor Livesey at the squire's house (a squire is a local lord). The squire is Mr. Trelawney. Doctor Livesey and Squire Trelawney both agree that Captain Flint is a famous pirate and that Jim's packet of papers must contain a treasure map to Flint's fortune. Squire Trelawney offers to put up the money for a sailing voyage to the island shown on the map, since who doesn't want to go hunting for treasure? So it's decided: Squire Trelawney is going to go to a coastal town in England right away to hire a ship and a crew, and then Doctor Livesey will come down to accompany him on their quest. Jim gets to go, too, as cabin boy.

The district squire, Trelawney, proposes buying a ship and going after the treasure, taking Livesey as ship's doctor and Jim as cabin boy.Several weeks later, Trelawney sends for Jim and Livesey and introduces them to Long John Silver, a Bristol tavern-keeper whom he has hired as ship's cook. They also meet Captain Smollett, who tells them that he does not like the crew or the voyage, which it seems everyone in Bristol knows is a search for treasure. After taking a few precautions, however, they set sail for the distant island. During the voyage the first mate, a drunkard, disappears overboard. And just before the island is sighted, Jim overhears Silver talking with two other crewmen and realizes that he and most of the others are pirates and have planned a mutiny. Jim tells the captain, Trelawney, and Livesey, and they calculate that they will be seven to nineteen against the mutineers and must pretend not to suspect anything until the treasure is found, when they can surprise their adversaries.But after the ship is anchored, Silver and some of the others go ashore, and two men who refuse to join the mutiny are killed - one with so loud a scream that everyone realizes there can be no more pretense. Jim has impulsively joined the shore party, and now in running away from them he encounters a half-crazy Englishman, Ben Gunn, who tells him he was marooned here and can help against the mutineers in return for passage home and part of the treasure.Meanwhile Smollett, Trelawney, and Livesey, along with Trelawney's three servants and one of the other hands, Abraham Gray, abandon the ship and come ashore to occupy a stockade. The men still on the ship, led by the coxswain Israel Hands, run up the pirate flag. One of Trelawney's servants and one of the pirates are killed in the fight to reach the stockade, and the ship's gun keeps up a barrage upon them, to no effect, until dark, when Jim finds the stockade and joins them. The next morning Silver appears under a flag of truce, offering terms that Captain Smollett refuses, and revealing that another pirate has been killed in the night (by Ben Gunn, Jim realizes, although Silver does not). At Smollett's refusal to surrender the map, Silver threatens an attack, and, within a short while, the attack on the stockade is launched. After a battle, the surviving mutineers retreat, having lost six men, but two more of the captain's group have been killed and Smollett himself is badly wounded.

Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894), son of a joint-engineer to the Board of Northern Light-houses, was born in Edinburgh. He was admitted advocate in 1875, but had determined to be a writer. Fascinated by Edinburgh low life, he cultivated a Bohemian style. His first work of fiction, "Treasure Island" (1883) brought him fame, which increased with the publication of "The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde" (1886). This was followed by his popular Scottish romances "Kidnapped" (1886), "Catriona" (1893) and "The Master of Ballantrae"(1889). In 1888, Stevenson had set out with his family entourage for the South Seas, and finally settled in Samoa at Vailima, where he temporarily regained his health but died suddenly from a brain haemorrhage, while working on his unfinished masterpiece "Weir of Hermiston" (1896). He suffered from a chronic bronchial condition (possibly tuberculosis)."Treasure Island" (1883). An old buccaneer, who has in his chest information in the shape of a manuscript map as to the whereabouts of Capt. Flint´s treasure, takes up his quarters at the Admiral Benbow, an inn somewhere on the coast in the west of England in the 18th cent. The mother of Jim Hawkins, the narrator, keeps the inn.

The quintessential adventure story that first established pirates in the popular imagination When a mysterious sailor dies in sinister circ*mstances at the Admiral Benbow inn, young Jim Hawkins stumbles across a treasure map among the dead man's possessions. But Jim soon becomes only too aware that he is not the only one who knows of the map's existence, and his bravery and cunning are tested to the full when, with his friends Squire Trelawney and Dr Livesey, he sets sail in the Hispaniola to track down the treasure. With its swift-moving plot and memorably drawn characters--Blind Pew and Black Dog, the castaway Ben Gunn and the charming but dangerous Long John Silver--Stevenson's tale of pirates, treachery and heroism was an immediate success when it was first published in 1883 and has retained its place as one of the greatest of all adventure stories.

Robert Louis Stevenson was born in Edinburgh in 1850. Chronically ill with bronchitis and possibly tuberculosis, Stevenson withdrew from Engineering at Edinburgh University in favour of Studying Law. Although he passed the bar and became an advocate in 1875, he knew that his true work was as a writer. Between 1876 and his death in 1894, Stevenson wrote prolifically. His published essays, short stories, fiction, travel books, plays, letters and poetry number in dozens. The most famous of his works include Travels With A Donkey in the Cevennes (1879), New Arabian Nights (1882), Treasure Island (1883), The Strange Case of Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde (1887), Thrawn Janet (1887) and Kidnapped (1893). After marrying Fanny Osbourne in 1880 Stevenson continued to travel and to write about his experiences. His poor health led him and his family to Valima in Samoa, where they settled. During his days there Stevenson was known as âe~Tusitalaâe(tm) or âe~The Story Tellerâe(tm). His love of telling romantic and adventure stories allowed him to connect easily with the universal child in all of us. âe~Fiction is to grown men what play is to the child,âe(tm) he said. Robert Louis Stevenson died in Valima in 1894 of a brain haemorrhage.

A Swashbuckling Pirate Adventure! To encounter Treasure Island for the first time is a great and uncomplicated pleasure for a reader of any age. One of the classic adventure stories in English, published first in 1881, Stevenson's novel transcends its time and genre and remains today not only a page-turner but also an engaging portrayal of personality and conflict. Treasure Island, once described as a "boys' book," appeals now not to boys alone but to anyone who likes exciting, believable, non-stop action and colorful characters in an exotic setting. Set in the mid 1700s, first along the coast of western England and then in the seaport of Bristol, the book takes readers quickly to the high seas and finally to a remote and secret island on a quest for pirate treasure. And although this premise may sound far-fetched, in reality it is anything but that...

A seaman with intact legs shows up, frightening Billy who drinks far too much rum into a stroke, and Billy tells Jim that his former shipmates covet the contents of his sea chest. After a visit from yet another man, Billy has another stroke and dies; Jim and his mother (his father has also died just a few days before) unlock the sea chest, finding some money, a journal, and a map. The local physician, Dr. Livesey, deduces that the map is of an island where a deceased pirate Captain Flint buried a vast treasure.

The district squire, Trelawney, proposes buying a ship and going after the treasure, taking Livesey as ship's doctor and Jim as cabin boy.Robert Louis Stevenson, né le 13 novembre 1850 à Édimbourg et mort le 3 décembre 1894 à Vailima (Samoa), est un écrivain écossais et un grand voyageur, célèbre pour son roman L'Île au trésor (1883), pour sa nouvelle L'Étrange Cas du docteur Jekyll et de M. Hyde (1886) et pour son récit Voyage avec un âne dans les Cévennes (1879).Stevenson est parfois considéré comme un auteur de romans d'aventure ou de récits fantastiques pour adolescents, mais son oeuvre a une tout autre dimension: il a d'ailleurs été salué avec enthousiasme par les plus grands de ses contemporains et de ses successeurs. Ses nouvelles et romans manifestent en effet une profonde intelligence de la narration, de ses moyens et de ses effets. Il exploite tous les ressorts du récit comme la multiplication des narrateurs et des points de vue, et pratique en même temps une écriture très visuelle, propice aux scènes particulièrement frappantes.

Durian, scientifically known as Durio zibethinus, is a tropical fruit that is popular in Southeast Asia. It has a unique taste and aroma, but what many people don't know is that it also contains compounds that have potential anticancer properties. In recent years, researchers have been exploring the use of durian as a natural remedy for cancer, particularly for human leukemic cancer (HL-60) cells. One of the compounds found in durian that is believed to have anti-cancer properties is alpha-mangostin, which is also found in mangosteen fruit. Alpha-mangostin has been shown to induce apoptosis, or programmed cell death, in HL-60 cells. This is significant because cancer cells often have a defect in the process of apoptosis, which allows them to continue to grow and divide uncontrollably. By inducing apoptosis, alpha-mangostin may help to slow or stop the growth of cancer cells. In addition to alpha-mangostin, durian also contains other compounds that have been shown to have anticancer properties, such as flavonoids, tannins, and phenols. These compounds have been found to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, which can help to protect cells from damage that can lead to cancer. While the research on durian as an anticancer drug is still in the early stages, there is promising evidence to suggest that it may have potential as a natural remedy for cancer. However, it's important to note that more research is needed to fully understand the mechanisms by which durian and its compounds work to fight cancer, as well as the optimal dosage and administration methods. In the meantime, if you're interested in exploring the potential health benefits of durian, it's best to consume it as part of a healthy, balanced diet. Durian is a good source of vitamins, minerals, and fiber, and can be enjoyed fresh, frozen, or in a variety of dishes and desserts. As with any natural remedy, it's always best to talk to your doctor before using durian or any other food or supplement as a treatment for cancer.

A pirate walks into the inn owned by the father of Jim Hawkins. The pirate’s name is Bill Bones, and he has a map to a treasure on an island in a chest. He is a gravely old man who dies of a stroke after getting a notice that the pirates he had been running from, had found him. Jim finds the map and shares it with a doctor and squire near his home. They decide to get a ship and crew to find the treasure. But, the sailor they hire is Long John Silver, who they discover is a pirate. He has a two-hundred-year-old parrot that sings shanties and sits on his shoulder. Long John Silver brings with him men who, they discover later, are also pirates. When they arrive at the island, the pirates mutiny. They take over the ship and try to get the treasure for themselves. The pirates and the regular sailors go back and forth on who has the ship. Jim comes across a crazy old man, Ben Gunn, who was marooned three years ago, by Captain Flint when he buried his treasure. After Long John Silver acquired the map from Jim’s friends, he and the pirates go for the treasure. They find that the treasure was moved by Ben Gunn years earlier.

The novel "Treasure Island" is a real treasure itself: the sea, the pirates, an uninhabited island, danger, romance, exciting adventures and, of course, wonderful heroes. So, the paths lead to the island of treasures, where Captain Flint reliably hid treasures.


This is the extraordinary tale of a boy, Jim Hawkins, who comes into possession of Captain Flint's treasure map, after a buccaneer takes a room at his inn and later dies. The map spreads its ill luck to all who know of it. A local squire outfits a ship to voyage to the Treasure Island, unearth the treasure, and bring it home. Little does he suspect that the man he has hired aboard as cook was formerly Flint's quartermaster, who then connives to hire many of his old mates. Once ashore, pirates being pirates, what follows is a mutiny. Jim and a handful of honest men find themselves harried and hunted by the rest of the crew. The pirate treasure, amassed by so much blood and death, is about to reach out and claim more victims!

Robert Louis Stevenson verkis Trezorinsulo en 1880 aŭ 1881, komencinte ĝin en Braemar, Skotlando, kie lia patro helpis per ideoj ĉerpitaj el la propraj maristaj spertoj. Ĝi estis finita dum lia dua vizito al Davos en la vintro de 1881-1882. Trezorinsulo, kiu aperis kiam la aŭtoro estis 31-jara, estis lia unua longa romantika rakonto, kaj havigis al li unuan guston de populara sukceso tiam, kiam la romano estis eldonita libroforme. En oktobro 1881 ĉi tiu rakonto komencis aperi kiel serio en angla gazeto nomita Young Folks (Junaj Personoj). La titolo tiutempe estis The Sea Cook, or Treasure Island (La Markuiristo, aŭ Trezorinsulo), sed kiam ĝi eldoniĝis libroforme en majo 1883, la nomo estis simple Trezorinsulo. La traduko en Esperanto estas farita de Grace Kirkwood, kaj aperis en 1977. -- It was in 1880 and 1881 that Robert Louis Stevenson wrote Treasure Island, which was begun at Braemar, Scotland, where his father aided him with suggestions from his own seafaring experiences. It was finished in the course of his second visit to Davos in the winter of 1881-1882. Treasure Island, which appeared when the author was thirty-one, was his first long romance, and it brought to him his first taste of popular success, when the story was published in book form. It was in October 1881, that this story began to appear as a serial in an English magazine called Young Folks. The title then was The Sea Cook, or Treasure Island, but when published in book form in May 1883, the name was simply Treasure Island, a name which has taken its place among the titles of far older classics. This edition contains the superb illustrations of Louis Rhead, which he published in 1915. The Esperanto translation is by Grace Kirkland, and appeared in 1977.

Tim Gregory captures the essence of this classic coming-of-age tale featuring villainous buccaneers, buried treasure, murder, treachery and adventure on the high seas. We follow the exploits of young Jim Hawkins along his voyage for treasure aboard the Hispaniola
to his showdown with the villain Long John Silver on Treasure Island. Gregory introduces a host of uniquely rendered characters, with Silver and his pirates matching wits and weapons with Hawkins and his comrades as they battle for control of Treasure Island and a share of Captain Flint's long lost treasure. Gregory's rendering of the iconic charactersâ??particularly the duplicitous Silver and the marooned and raving Ben Gunnâ??are nuanced, true to the text and utterly enjoyable. He avoids the easy clichés of the pirate genre and instead portrays complex characters in a performance that will delight listeners of all ages.

An absorbing tale of buccaneers, a map, a romantic quest for treasure, it is also the story of the sea cook of its original title - the brilliantly drawn Long John Silver, that 'smooth and formidable adventurer' of whom Stevenson was rightly proud and for whom even he felt a little admiration."--Jacket.

"Die Schatzinsel", der große Abenteuerroman der fru?hen Moderne, hat die Leser vom ersten Augenblick an gefesselt und Generationen von Schriftstellern inspiriert - von Mark Twain bis Marcel Proust, von Bertolt Brecht bis Alex Capus. Liebevoll zeichnet Stevenson in seinem fru?hen Werk die Figuren: den mutigen Jung en Jim Hawkins und den gerissenen Seera?uber Silver, und all die dubiosen und skurrilen Gestalten. Und er la?sst sie in einer herrlich klassischen Szenerie auftreten: diesseits und jenseits der Reling, lebensgefa?hrlich in der Schwebe und in eingekesselter Bedra?ngnis.

Robert Louis Stevenson: Die Schatzinsel || Neue Ausgabe, mit den original Illustrationen von Georges Roux und der legendären Schatzkarte, von Stevenson selbst gezeichnet || ›Die Schatzinsel‹ gehört zu jenen faszinierenden Büchern, die über Jahrzehnte hinweg von Generationen abenteuerlustiger Jungs (und Mädchen) immer wieder aufs Neue gelesen werden. Die Idee zum Buch entstand für Robert Louis Stevenson, als er für seinen Stiefsohn die Karte einer Insel skizzierte. Er berichtet später davon: »Die Gestalt dieser Insel befruchtete meine Phantasie außerordentlich. Da waren Buchten und Hafenplätze, die mich entzückten, [...] und im Bewusstsein einer Schicksalsbestimmung nannte ich mein Erzeugnis ›Die Schatzinsel‹Â«. Als der Roman 1883 in London erschien, wurde er sofort ein überragender Bestseller. || Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) war ein schottischer Schriftsteller, der ein umfangreiches Werk von Reiseerzählungen und Abenteuerliteratur verfasste - am bekanntesten sind ›Die Schatzinsel‹ und die Horrorgeschichte ›Der seltsame Fall des Dr. Jekyll und Mr. Hyde‹.

Geronimo Stilton, cet intellectuel sensible et raffiné qui dirige "L'écho des rongeurs", se propose ici de raconter à ses admirateurs les grands classiques de la littérature pour la jeunesse qui ont bercé son enfance et qui l'ont fait voyager dans des contrées aussi fabuleuses qu'exotiques. Chaque opus de la série fait donc revivre un chef-d'oeuvre littéraire, dont les protagonistes se voient conférer les traits de rongeurs humanisés. Sous ce titre: un classique du roman d'aventure et de piraterie mettant en scène Jim Hawkins, fils d'aubergistes, qui hérite un jour d'une carte indiquant l'emplacement d'une île sur laquelle serait enfoui le légendaire trésor du capitaine Flint. Il n'en faut pas plus pour que le jeune garçon et le docteur Livesey mettent sur pied une expédition en vue de récupérer le convoité butin. Or, le duo devra composer avec Long John Silver, le célèbre pirate à la jambe de bois, qui s'est fait engager comme cuisinier sur le navire.Une adaptation légère dont le texte, abondamment dialogué, fait l'objet de typographies variées et expressives qui traduisent la verve et l'entrain du sympathique bestiaire. Ce dernier prend vie dans un graphisme qui voisine le dessin animé, mais qui respecte les représentations traditionnelles associées au classique, notamment en ce qui concerne les costumes des protagonistes et le cadre historique. Une courte biographie de l'auteur clôt ce plaisir de lecture qui pourra servir de tremplin à l'oeuvre originale. [SDM].

Stevenson escribió La isla del tesoro cuando vio a su sobrino dibujar con acuarelas el mapa de una isla. Comenzó a ponerle nombres: la isla del Esqueleto, la colina del Catalejo, hasta escribir en la esquina superior derecha las palabras «la isla del tesoro». Tras una larga enfermedad, murió en 1894 en la isla de Upolu, en el Pacífico Sur, donde vivía entonces. ¿Encontraría su tesoro en esa isla? Stevenson wrote Treasure Island when his nephew drew a watercolor map with an island. He began to give the places names like Skeleton Island. Then, in the upper right-hand corner, he wrote "Treasure Island." Stevenson lost his life in 1894 after battling an illness on the island of Upolu in the South Pacific. Is it possible that he found his treasure on that island?

La Isla del Tesoro reúne todos los elementos de la gran novela de aventuras clásica: una equis en el mapa, un joven huérfano con ansias de aventura, navegación en barcos de vela, intrigas y traiciones, ínsulas exóticas... Es el libro de aventuras inmarcesible al que ningún otro corsario ha podido hacer sombra. Como otros grandes clásicos de la literatura universal (Frankenstein o Alicia en el país de las maravillas) se dice de él que la idea le surgió a su autor en una racha de mal tiempo que le tenía confinado en casa a él y su familia, y que la trama surgió para entretener a su hijastro. Al parecer, primero le dibujó el mapa de la isla con el tesoro enterrado. Y a partir de ahí empezó a escribir la historia. Una historia protagonizada por el adolescente Jim Hawkins, que trabaja en la posada de sus padres. El día en que un viejo marinero taciturno y malhumorado llega para alojarse, la vida de Jim y su familia cambiará. El huésped posee un mapa que sus patibularios compinches anhelan, y que, por azar, va a parar a manos del joven hostalero. Empieza entonces una aventura por el mar para viajar a la isla caribeña que esconde el tesoro. El cocinero contratado en el puerto, un tal John Silver, y la tripulación, no son de fiar. Pronto protagonizarán un motín para apoderarse del mapa y comenzar a cavar en busca del cofre lleno de oro.

La isla del tesoro es una novela de aventuras escrita por el escocés Robert Louis Stevenson, publicada en libro en Londres en 1883. Esta obra ha sido fuente de inspiración en el cine, en la televisión, en la literatura, en cómics e incluso en videojuegos. La novela adopta un tono crítico y una reflexión moral del protagonista hacia el dinero y la ambición. La isla del tesoro representa en estado puro la novela de aventuras en la cual la busca mítica de un objeto preciado actúa como móvil para la huida hacia escenarios exóticos donde la libertad es posible.El efecto de La isla del tesoro sobre nuestra percepción de los piratas a menudo se subestima. Stevenson unió a los piratas para siempre con mapas, goletas negras, islas tropicales, y marineros con una sola pierna con loros sobre sus hombros. El mapa de tesoro con una X que marca de la posición del tesoro enterrado es uno de los rasgos piratas más familiares, y sin embargo es una invención completamente ficticia que debe su origen al mapa original de Stevenson. El término "La Isla del tesoro" ha pasado a la lengua como una frase común, y a menudo es usada como un título para juegos, paseos, sitios, etc.Esta novela clásica de aventuras, además de relatar las peripecias y peligros que deben enfrentar los tripulantes del barco que sale en busca de un tesoro escondido, es un libro de iniciación. Su protagonista es un adolescente que participa de la expedición como grumete y se convierte de algún modo en el héroe de la historia, capaz de resolver situaciones conflictivas cuando otros marineros experimentados no pueden hacerlo.Robert Louis Stevenson nos dejó este tesoro literario para la posteridad. ¡¡¡Excelente libro para iniciarse en la lectura y disfrutar las aventuras!!!

La isla del tesoro, un clásico de la literatura escocesa, y representada ya en diferentes formas, cuenta la historia de unos marineros que zarpan en búsqueda de un tesoro escondido. Desde el misterioso personaje que entrega el mapa, hasta los piratas que se amotinan en contra del capitán, y, sobre todo, los heroicos y temerarios actos del joven Jim Hawkins que los ayudan a sobrevivir en la isla; la historia está llena de aventuras. Es normal que las vidas de los autores se reflejen en sus escritos, y la vida de Robert Louis Stevenson no se queda atrás. Parecido a un nómada, Robert pasó mucho tiempo de su vida viajando por muchos lugares del mundo debido a su terrible estado de salud; por lo tanto, era maestro en escribir sobre aventuras. Es justo en uno de sus viajes, donde muere, dejando atrás un legado de fantasía y terror.

"Ogni sera, il padre di Robert Louis Stevenson raccontava a se stessso avventure di pirati, di ladri, di briganti e di veccchi marinai. Il figlio faceva lo stesso: la sera si raccontava storie d'avventura, e le sognava nelle ore notturne. Quando, nel settembre 1881, cominciò a scrivere 'L'Isola del tesoro', gli parve di attingere a un patrimonio famigliare."

Tvorchestvo Stivensona mozhno nazvat' vozvratom k chistomu romantizmu. Ostaviv v storone social'nye problemy, avtor «Ostrova sokrovishch» izbral tu oblast' smeloj, voskhititel'no krasochnoj fantazii, gde vsyakij, kto molod dushoj, mozhet najti otvet na vse volnuyushchie ego voprosy. Social'nye zadachi smenyayutsya, no molodost' vsegda verna sebe; v ehtom zalog vechnogo uspekha Stivensona, ehtogo velikogo optimista, vsya zhizn' kotorogo proshla v geroicheskoj bor'be so smertel'noj bolezn'yu. Vo vsem ego raznoobraznom tvorchestve, v ego povestyah, skazkah, romanah zvuchit zhizneradostnyj prizyv k bodrosti, k otvazhnym priklyucheniyam; on lyubil starinu za velichavyj otzvuk bylyh podvigov i vel nas v stranu dalekogo proshlogo ili k zateryannym sredi okeana ostrovam, znakomil so vsemi chudesami zemnogo shara... Bezuprechnyj stilist i tonkij hudozhnik, on nikogda ne preryvaet svoego rasskaza otvlechennymi rassuzhdeniyami i blagodarya ehtomu vse vremya prikovyvaet vnimanie chitatelya k hodu razvertyvaemyh sobytij. Ot ego knigi nel'zya otorvat'sya, ne dochitav ee do konca. Stanovyas' povestvovatelem, on pochti stushevyvaet svoyu yarkuyu individual'nost', ob"edinyayushchij otpechatok kotoroj, tem ne menee, lezhit na vsekh ego proizvedeniyah. ­«Ostrov sokrovishch» nachalsya pechataniem v ezhenedel'nom zhurnale «YAng Folks», v 1881 godu. EHtot pervyj roman Stivensona, odin iz samyh uvlekatel'nyh, srazu proslavil avtora i sdelal izvestnym ego imya. Central'naya figura romana - Dzhon Sil'ver «s licom, bol'shim kak okorok vetchiny, i s malen'kimi sverkayushchimi glazami, pohozhimi na oskolki stekla», - nastoyashchij korol' piratov. Iz namekov, iz legkih sluchajnyh shtrihov vyrastaet pered voobrazheniem chitatelya lichnost' ehtogo blagoobraznogo i bezzhalostnogo odnonogogo zlodeya. On perestaet byt' sozdaniem vymysla, on kak by zhivoj chelovek iz ploti i krovi, s kotorym my voshli v soprikosnovenie. Dzhon - zakorenelyj prestupnik, kotoromu net proshcheniya, no nam ne hotelos' by s nim rasstat'sya; my rady byli by prodolzhit' nashe prebyvanie na zagadochnom ostrove, gde spryatano nagrablennoe zoloto, ili uznat' eshche chto-nibud' o priklyucheniyah rodivshegosya pod schastlivoj zvezdoj Dzhima Hokinsa... ­Interesna istoriya vozniknoveniya romana. Stivenson byl ochen' druzhen so svoim pasynkom, Llojdom Osbornom, togda eshche 13-letnim mal'chikom. U Llojda byla otdel'naya komnata, gde nahodilis' prinadlezhnosti dlya risovaniya, malen'kij tipografskij stanok, knigi; tam sostavlyalsya i vypuskalsya v svet shutlivyj domashnij zhurnal, sotrudnikami kotorogo byli vse chleny semejstva. Stivenson lyubil provodit' tam s mal'chikom celye chasy i sam veselilsya kak rebenok. Odnazhdy on nachertil i raskrasil kartu fantasticheskogo ostrova i nazval ego «Ostrovom Sokrovishch». EHta shutka i natolknula ego na ideyu znamenitogo romana.

Com a morte do pirata Billy Bones na hospedaria Almirante Benbow, Jim Hawkins, um menino de 12 anos, abriu o baú do velho lobo do mar e descobriu, além de moedas de várias nacionalidades, o mapa de uma ilha onde haveria um tesouro enterrado pelo terrível Capitão Flint. Jim mostrou o mapa para Dr. Livesey e Sir Trelawney, homens influentes da região. Logo partiram no navio Hispaniola para uma expedição à ilha. A tripulação tinha como cozinheiro Long John Silver, um veterano do mar que havia trabalhado no barco de Flint. Silver os ajudou a escolher o restante da tripulação, homens experientes, entre os quais alguns aliados de Long John - que, como tantos outros piratas, queria mesmo era pegar o tesouro. A partir daí, começa uma eletrizante aventura, com lutas, armadilhas, mortes sangrentas, barcos à deriva, tempestades e descobertas impressionantes. Trama cheia de traições e reviravoltas, A ilha do tesouro tem todos os ingredientes para manter o leitor empolgado e sem fôlego a cada página. Clássico para ler e reler muitas vezes, a obra é, muito provavelmente, uma fonte na qual beberam os autores da série Piratas do Caribe, entre outros.
